Do you judge yourself or overwhelm yourself with the amount of things you expect yourself to do each week?
I’m realizing lately, that I judge myself more than anybody else does. I let labels stick to me and define me. I compare myself to others which is silly because I don’t know anybody who is going through what I am going through.
I’m trying a new thing where I don’t put pressure on myself to do certain things like getting up early. We’ll see if this works better than trying to go to bed by 10:00 pm and trying to get up at a certain time (early= 6:00 am), failing then feeling guilty.
Yes, I am a Compassionate Entrepreneur, business owner, blogger, and work at home mom (not to mention all of my other responsibilities) but I am a mom first. I need to let that sink in. Being a mom is not the easiest but it is rewarding. Putting motherhood first does not make me lazy. My son is only two and I am so blessed to get to spend so much time with him. I know that not everybody gets that and I shouldn’t feel guilty about it.
I want to excel at everything I do… being a mom is the most important.
Be a mom to your child. Love him. Take care of her. Relax. Have fun.
But also, take care of yourself. Sleep when you can. Make time for yourself. Spend time with friends. And reach out for help when you need it.
My blog is full of practical tips but my heart is for women (moms) to connect to my words not just learn something.
